A change in Chapel times for Sebewaing campus: The Sebewaing campus will be holding Advent in the Afternoon at 2:25 PM starting on Wednesday, Dec. 6th through the entire month of December. Please come and worship our Lord and Savior through this unique worship opportunity. Please NOTE: This does not affect the Unionville campus. UC will still have chapel at its regular scheduled time, 9:30 AM.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT HAS ALREADY ARRIVED? The Unionville Christmas Program will have two performances, one on Friday, December 15th, at 10:00 AM as well as on Sunday, December 17th, at 4:00 PM. CTK is offering two chances to see the program due to the number of people who have liked to attend the program at St. Paul. The Sebewaing Christmas Program will be taking place on Wednesday, December 20th at 7:00 PM.

    Mrs. Mammel and I would like to ask you to continue to send in your Boxtops and your Luke’s receipts. These are the only two programs that help to support CTK besides our churches. This is FREE money that CTK uses to purchase equipment and materials for your students. These can be given to the teachers or sent directly into the office. Secondly, please make sure that you continue to order your SCRIP from the school office. These make great Christmas gifts for employees, friends, families, a certain school secretary, or a really funny principal!

    I know a few families have already used the free Advent devotions from Concordia Publishing House. The only piece of information that CPH needs for you to receive this special worship resource is your email. The devotions started on Dec. 1 and run through Christmas Day. This is one more way for you to take two minutes and show your children the importance of reading God’s Word together as a family. Here is the link again for those who missed that email: Advent Devotions

    Inclement Weather Reminder: Hello My CTK families, I want to remind you that if there is inclement weather, CTK will follow Unionville-Sebewaing public schools. There is no reason for you to call my house. I have one inside source who will let me know when the public school is canceling. Out of respect for Mr. Rierson, the superintendent of USA schools, I wait until I receive word from him before I officially announce for CTK. I then announce to the teachers and staff who make phone calls. Less than five minutes after I call, the school Facebook page is updated. So please, do not try to contact my home phone on snow days. I am trying to contact staff and television and radio stations to communicate the information to you. Thank you.

    CTK is now moving onto a new chapel designation for the months of December through February. During these months, the school will be participating in Hearts for Jesus. The Hearts for Jesus organization for this year is the Lutheran Special Education Ministries (LSEM). Your children learned a little about LSEM through the last chapel. They will be viewing a few videos to show how LSEM helps those people in need.

    A coach has been found for the A-Team. Bringing his mad basketball skills to the CTK is Mr. Shaun Gremel. We want to thank him for stepping forward so OUR 6-8th grade boys will be able to take to the hoop this season. Yep, hip basketball lingo!!!

    Here is a short reminder…Mrs. Stolarczyk and Mrs. Walz will be back at it this week. If you have no clue what I am talking about, your child has the opportunity to purchase CEF stamps from these ladies for either $0.25 or $1.00. Your child needs your permission to begin this program. If you have any questions, please call the office.

    Remember that if you are a member of Immanuel or St. Paul, you need to attend church twice a month at an LCMS congregation. If it is not Immanuel or St. Paul, your child needs to bring in a bulletin to the teacher.
